Oil & Gas UK promotes improvements in maintenance on offshore o&g platforms

The representative body for the UK offshore oil and gas industry, Oil & Gas UK, has launched a new publication that is, according to the organization, promoting improvements in major accident hazard management operational efficiency on offshore oil and gas installations.

Oil & Gas UK said that the publication, titled “Maintenance Optimisation Reviews: Sharing Experience and Learning”, was launched on Thursday.

Mick Borwell, Oil & Gas UK’s HSE Policy Director, said: “The industry’s focus on ensuring the continued safety of offshore operations means equipment maintenance must be carried out to the highest standards. Maintenance regimes are subject to regular review to ensure they remain fit-for-purpose and enable operators to continue safely operating equipment and achieve their business objectives.

“By capturing the experience of specialists in maintenance and asset integrity, we believe this document will improve awareness of how the industry can optimize maintenance reviews to deliver safe, reliable and sustainable operations and contribute to tackling the backlog in safety critical maintenance.”

The organization added that technical specialists from several Oil & Gas UK’s member companies have been involved in developing the publication. The document provides examples of good practice in how to implement structured reviews of safety and business critical equipment maintenance as well as two practical case studies.

Borwell added: “We appreciate the opportunity to share with the wider industry the expertise of those companies who contributed to this document, which we believe will support robust and effective maintenance optimization reviews.

“Promoting improvements in maintenance remains a key focus for the industry in its efforts to maximize economic recovery from the UKCS. The intention is to monitor uptake of the document and the ongoing effectiveness of efforts in this area, using key performance indicators to track progress in reducing the maintenance backlog.”
